If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Huckins Yacht knows the expression well. Its patented Quadraconic planing-hull design is as effective at running in a sea today as it was when created in 1928. Starting in 1995, 13 Atlantic 44s were built for yachtsmen with an eye for style and a penchant for a solid ride.
Notable features: Yachting’s test 44 planed effortlessly at 13 knots and easily maintained her 29.6-knot top speed.
Belowdecks: The Atlantic 44 had two layout options. There was a single stateroom forward with an island queen berth and galley-down, or a two-stateroom, galley-up arrangement adding upper and lower guest berths.
Availability: At press time, three Atlantic 44s were for sale, ranging from $250,000 to $395,000.
